Ascent Trip Report

Drove up the Highland Valley road toward the Intermountain Bird Observatory. The gate was open, so I drove up to a little over 4500 feet. I could have kept driving, the road was fine, but I wanted a little bit of mileage, and I had time before I needed to get back downtown. The summit was nice, and the observatory looks like a lot of fun. The people that run it offer various public outreach seminars that look informative and entertaining. I like raptors, so it kind of plays to my interests.
